Liposuction Beverly Hills
Excess fatty tissue can accumulate in isolated areas of the face and/or body. Sometimes this is not just a problem of being overweight. Some people find it hard to lose inches in certain areas of the face and body, no matter how much they work-out or diet. Such are ideal situations for liposuction surgery. Liposuction is performed by inserting a special instrument, or cannula, through a tiny incision in the skin and removing most of the unwanted fat cells in the area. Patient will have a more natural contour to their shape. The micro cannulas which are used are less that 1/4 of an inch wide. The most common areas for liposuction are underneath the chin, the abdomen, hips (for women), flanks or “love handles” (for men), arms, inner and outer thighs, and knees. A compressive garment is required during the healing process to obtain a better result.
Liposuction removes fat from the body using suction. During liposuction, small, thin, blunt-tipped tubes (cannula) are inserted through tiny cuts in the skin. Fat is suctioned out through these tubes under the skin to target specific fat deposits. The main purpose of liposuction is to reshape one or more areas of the body, not to reduce body weight. Liposuction is typically used on “problem” areas that have not responded well to diet and exercise. These areas are often on the outer thighs and hips on women and the waist and back on men. The face, neck, abdomen, back, buttocks, legs, and upper arms are all commonly treated areas.
